Xbox designers say they have resolved the "red ring of death" that resulted in many ruined consoles.

I guess thats good news for some.. I've never had any issues *knock on wood*

At least they're probably being truthful. ;)

They fix RROD for free.. lol

my warranty is up and they said they can't do a thing about it... and it is 4 lights so that is a hardware issue, correct?

YES that is correct... 4 lights is NOT RROD.

All 4 lights is an over heating issue.. try to wrap a towel around it, maybe you can force the RROD on it then get it fixed for free.!

Who said anything about an Elite.?

 

no, i always heard from friends and other XBOX ELITE owners that they had solved the problem on the ELITE, that the ELITE never gets the RROD.

[/quote']I wouldn't say never.. i dont think the Elite was 100% RROD proof, but it was definitely made much better.

Now i think they have been able to fix the problem altogether.. no matter which system.

Elite is 99% RROD proof, so go get one. ;D
